    If you remove the scale, you can take out the torsion bar to eliminate the blade assist. It's an easy, and reversible, fix. If you can't import it, buy one off the exchange. Many Kershaw owners know how to do it and carry their knives de-assisted.

    Need to post a slight revision. Don't know why I didn't include my Leek... brain freeze! The Leek I now have is one with the SS bead blasted handle and Sandvik 14C28N blade... Shortly to be joined by one of its cousins that sports CF handles and CPM 154 blade!

    L'chaim!

    Need to update yet again. I cancelled the order for the Leek with CF handle... been a little too free with the credit card this month! So its on a wish list for some future date once I get myself under control!

    I hate being 'good'. :-(

    Definitely my Kershaw Tremor. Love the hollow grind and size for my XL Banana hands! Paid $25 and huge bang for the buck. Assisted flipper and easy to sharpen

    I feel your pain ;)

    With family and kids it's not so easy to waste money for something we don't really need.
    But it's easier to get a wishlist for Santa as long as a tolilet paper roll :p

    Have a beautiful Leek with a Skyline in the mail! Adnj, I've heard the deactivating only works with certain Kershaw and the Leek isn't one of them. Just curious if other have had diff results.

    You mean to de-assist the Leek like making it all manual without a spring inside?

    That's only possible if you know how to drill a detent hole into the hardened blade, so for normal users, no, it's not de-assistable.
    Even if you drill a detent hole it wouldn't flick well, it's just not designed to work without a spring.

    My try on drilling a detent hole with a diamond coated dremel bit.


    If you want a great manual flipper besides the Skyline I'd recommend the Chill.

    @superpacker: and @Adahn: +1 on the Kershaw Chill! Beautiful manual flipper. We ought to also recognize the Ontario Rat 1 & 2 as great manual flippers.

    L'chaim!

    Well yes, but the RAT 1+2 technically are flickers (with thumb studs) ;)

    I should learn to engage brain before typing. As anyone who knows the Ontario Rat 1 & 2 will point out, neither are actually 'flippers'. They use a thumb stud. But the action is so smooth as well as being manual that if they were actual flippers they'd be right up there!

    Sorry for the mistake.

    L'chaim!

    I found a new budget Kershaw at Dick's sporting goods, the Kershaw Wire. The handle is listed as carbon fiber on the packaging, although for the price point i doubt it. It is very smooth and glossy, but feels good. I'm really liking this knife. It feels great in the hand an i really like the shape of the blade.[​IMG]

    In my normal office attire my collection of leeks has been my go to for 10 years. Smooth scales are easy on the clothes, blades are easy on cutting anything and everything.
    Dressed down in jeans or anything else, it's my s30v Blur all the way way. I have 4 blurs, but onceI found this one all the others have spent significantly less time in rotation. If I ever get around to making my milled scales, and taming the thumb stud, my s30v Blur will be with me all the time.

    Been carrying an Junkyard Dog for almost a decade now. I've tried to replace it a couple times and it always ends up back in my pocket.

    Big fan of the Skyline. Light, sharp out of the box, good ergonomics, and easy to carry. It was my primary EDC for a few years and still gets occasional pocket time.
